Investing in the Bank for three months can give you less interest than re-investing repeatedly for a shorter amount of time.

New players kept asking us about marriage, so here’s all of the info you should need.

Benefits of Marriage There are a few benefits of marrying someone. Here are the main ones:

  • You get to share your house, if your partner has a bigger better house than yours you’ll automatically live in that (Remember, higher happy, or a better house, benefits all aspects of TC) and you still get to keep yours, even though you can’t see it on your home page, and you can still sell/buy other houses.
  • When you’ve stayed married for a certain amount of time you’ll receive awards for your dedication and awards= merits. To check out what awards you can get for , go to the award info page.
  • Often you can marry people who have good alliances which can come in handy when you’re getting warred/picked on.
  • If you’re smart enough you can get your spouse to send you gifts!( Remember ladies, the girl to guy ratio in TC can be exploited, if you’re so inclined… )

How to Propose To propose, the first thing you need is a ring. To get a ring you can either steal one, by doing the shoplifting crime and robbing the jewellery shop, or if you’re not good enough or dont want to risk it, you can always buy one from the auction house or from the item market. If you want to check what rings there are and their prices, check our items>jewellery list.

Once you’ve got a ring, go into your items inventory and click on [propose], next to the ring you want to propose with and enter the ID of the person you want to propose to where it asks you to.

How to Accept / Keep track of Propositions To check these, go to Preferences>Player Management. Under this function you get to manage any proposals you have made/received (i.e. accept/reject/cancel them). For more information on this function check out our Preferences tutorial.

How to Divorce To divorce, go City>Southside>Divorce Agency , and the procedure from here is quite straight forward. You have to be married for 7 days to be able to get a divorce.

Other Things you should Note:

  • You lose the ring once you propose, but get it back if they reject you or if you divorce.
  • Be warned, if you’ve been sleeping around ( or gold digging), everyone can find out just by looking at your profile; It displays how many times you’ve been married.
  • You can only be married to one person at a time.
  • You can marry the same sex.
  • You don’t both need to agree to have a divorce.
  • You can marry yourself, just put in your own ID when you propose. You can get awards when married to yourself. You don’t an/any extra awards by doing this. (was changed)
  • You also still get awards if your spouse has been deleted resulting in ‘Marital Status: Married to blank for x day(s)’.

which 2 awards i wont get from marrying myself?
written by Samrulez, June 08, 2007
if i marry a second time, do i get the same awards? or each award can only be gotten once? TCB: Each commitment award can only be gained once. Marrying yourself gets you the same awards as marrying someone else… no difference

You can marry yourself, just put in your own ID when you propose. You can get awards when married to yourself. You don’t get two awards through this method. the two awards means double the same award? thanks for the tutorial, i love this TCBasic

Do I get divorced if I sell the ring i’ve got married with? TCB: No, you can sell the ring

How do I ask someone to be my roommate? What are the benefits of having a roommate vs being married? THANKS Love the site! TCB: There’s no such thing as having a ‘roommate’, you have to marry to be able to share a house. Glad you like the site ^ ^

I think that you cannot marry yourself anymore.Can anyone confirm this? TCB: We’ve edited the information on this page, because a few people have had this issue.

So if i was to divorce a lower level and I bought the house, I would get the house back? TCB: You would keep the house that you bought. Level has no influence.
written by AnnonOMous, October 24, 2007
I’m lucky in that I’m married to someone who owns a mansion whilst I only have a shack but I’m wondering. Let’s say I also buy a house of a lower level than a mansion, say a trailer. My partner pays the cost of the mansion and I’m sitting pretty having to pay exactly 0 in tax. BUT, if I own a trailer, even though I’m not living in it would I still have to pay the $10 tax on it? To put it in a slightly simpler way, I don’t plan on getting divorced soon but if I buy a house better than a mansion, would my partner still be paying the tax on the mansion?

do you ask someone to marry or do you just marry them?

Hi… With all these new house upgrades, does your spouse share your upkeep costs?
written by 487814, November 15, 2007
@AnnonOMous no you will only pay tax if you are living in the house. @jiaman97 you have to propose usuing a ring wich can be bought from the jewlery store in the city or stolen usuing the shoplifting crime. @junkmail no the owner of the house is the one who pays the upkeep/staff costs.

written by mufc66, April 06, 2008
Hi. When upgrading a house, does your spouse benefit from the increased happy? For example, if i hire a maid that increases my happy by 50. Does it also increase my spouses happy by 50? Thanks TCB: Yes

written by slimdog, July 21, 2008
no one wants to marry me.. is it becoz i’m too ugly? too smelly? too noob or simply they spotted that i proposed with onion ring rather than diamond ring?
written by anonymous;), July 22, 2008
Slimdog its because you don’t have a private island with all upgrades for them to train in 😉

does it matter if your wife becomes an inactive player??? Are there any benefits to being married to an active player other than possible gifts, protection, and splitting upkeep??? TCB: Not that we know of- As long as she’s high enough level not to be deleted in a inactive purge . If she isn’t, maybe it’s better to get a new wife sooner rather than later, so you don’t lose precious merits.
written by {_()_______]~~’, August 21, 2008
Thank You! That helps a lot. Now I have a new question as you may have guessed… She is a level 4, is that high enough to avoid a purge? TCB: In the last purge I could find, all players under level 10, non-donaters, who hadn’t logged in for a year, were deleted. So probably not sorry.

written by LaoNiuChanXiao, October 18, 2008
You don’t need to buy diamond ring to propose. Buy a plain silver ring and you’ll be all fine, right? (unless he/she only want to marry someone rich)

what about ppl with the same ip address? because i got my fiancee playin this…she only logs in once a month maybe? could i get into trouble for proposing to her? cuz i dont wanna get introuble for it… TCB: Talk to staff about it. If you don’t share things it should be ok- but you have to make sure you get staff confirmation, save their mail, and don’t interact in ANY way that might be considered cheating.

If I married with man, what can I be ? Can I divorce with him? How can I do ? TCB: City > Divorce Agency
written by RandyFan, May 11, 2009
I think someone needs to remove that the guy/girl ratio in TC can be exploited, because now we have these thousands (maybe more) guys posing as girls, which not only causes a more equal guy/girl ratio but also causes distrust toward any REAL girls who just happen to sign up. :@
